The Malabar House, Cochin
Very Good8.0
Cute place. It's India, so don't expect much. Just be pleasantly surprised if and when it works out. Great art. Mediocre food. Decent room, but bathroom flooding issues, noise from the courtyard, and lots of mosquitos (not really their fault) prob pushes this down a few notches. Surprised this is a Relais property. But it's the price of a Holiday Inn at, like, the Cleveland Airport, so what can you expect? The colonial architecture and interiors were nicely done. Kerala is turning dry, so only beer and wine at the bar. And Fort in Kochi is really only worth your time for a's a bit boring after you see all the standard tourist stuff.

Perfect Spot
This is a small oasis in the old town of Cochin. It has beautiful decor, terrific staff and a nice restaurant attached.

Excellent place to stay in Fort Cochin. Walking distance to the town. The staff were excellent. Live music at dinner time was fantastic. Overall - A+. This is our second time at the Malabar House and will never stay any other place while in Fort Cochin.

Overall good - some quirks that need attention
Overall a comfortable stay. The manager and the front desk staff tries hard and mostly gets it right. The rooms have a nice decor with artistic elements and although we did run in to some minor issues with room conditions - temperature/water etc, the staff were able to resolve them to the best extent possible. This is an old building with a lot of charm, so I understand the maintenance can't be flawless. I wish the staff could be a bit more innovative and open about suggestions on places to eat outside the hotel restaurant and what to visit and see. That added genuine effort to to make the overall experience staying at fort kochi could make me come back again. Without that, I will have to think twice about fort kochi over all. Had a bad experience with the massage/spa though - the manager was kind enough to not charge for it though and take extra off the bill. Hope they can address that specially if they advertise the spa experience a lot. Will give them a try again for sure.

A conundrum?
It was all good until they told us we had to go to a different hotel. We are still not sure why....explanations unconvincing....
